Hello, and welcome back to what feels like the longest series I have planned and written for this blog. I can't even remember when I started it, but as I said last time, we are on the final stretch! It is time for instalment 8 on the Top 100 YA books according to Goodreads and… Continue reading GR: How Many Top 100 YA Books Have I Read? #8
"History is just one damned thing after another" is definitely how I'll describe my November reading because I have read nothing but The Chronicles of St Mary's all month, and you know what, I've loved it! What's not to love? I've reread a favourite series and these disaster magnets called historians who research historical events… Continue reading November Wrap Up – In Which History Takes Over!

I'm going off the #blogtober prompts again made by Library Looter and Anniek's Library and this particular one is dedicated to three books we should have read last year but didn't. I'm really bad at making sure I read the books on my yearly TBR so honestly, I have a million and one books that… Continue reading Three Books I Should Have Read Last Year
Not knowing what other posts to write in between my normal blogging features, I was scouring Blogtober posts for inspiration and came across this idea over on Library Looter. I think they were actually in charge for providing prompts for Blogtober, and I wish I could have come across it a few weeks ago because… Continue reading What Were You Reading This Time Last Year?
Hello! It is time for Disney to be paired with books once again and for this post I wanted to dive into my sister's childhood favourite film - Pinocchio. There were quite a few songs from the film I thought about using, but the one that struck me the most was "I've Got No Strings."… Continue reading Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Books: I’ve Got No Strings
